Indiana at Seattle

3 units on Seattle -5.5 (+100) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: win

3 units on Game Total OVER 138 -105 (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: win

Seattle is a team with two faces - two identities. The persona they take on when on the road does not resemble a good basketball team. It is a team that has lost five straight by an average of over 10 points per game. The persona they take on at home resembles a championship-caliber team. The Storm's lone blemish at home is to Connecticut, who has thus far positioned themselves as the team to beat in the WNBA. The other six home tilts have all gone into the win column by an average of nine points per game. That means this team is 19 points a game different at home than on the road! Indiana is getting lots of credit for hammering Connecticut on the road, but otherwise have a losing road mark. Their top scorers both shoot under 40% and as a team they barely reach 40% from the field. The key here is that they still manage to put up 71.3 points per game, meaning they play at a reasonably fast pace. Five of Seattle's last seven opponents have topped the 70-point mark as well. This game belongs to Seattle and should play in the 70s, so we will also grab the OVER here.
